If your thought is a rose
you are a rose garden
If your thought is a thorn
.you are fuel for the bath stove

Rumi, mathnawi, II, 278 l

The mind is an ocean ... I and so many worlds
! are rolling there, mysterious, dimly seen
And our bodies? Our body is a cup, floating
... on the ocean; soon it will fill, and sink
.Not even one bubble will show where it went down
